SEVIS Fees for Student and Exchange Visitors

What is SEVIS and SEVP? What should you know about it?

The Student and Exchange Visitor Program is designed to help the Department of Homeland Security and State Department better monitor student and exchange visitors. The Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) maintains accurate and current information on nonimmigrant students (F and M visa), exchange visitors (J visa), and their dependents (F-2, M-2, and J-2). SEVIS enables schools and program sponsors to transmit mandatory information and event notifications to the Department of Homeland Security and State Department during the visitor's stay in the United States.

Who pays the fee?

Those who wish to enter the United States either as a student or as an exchange visitor must complete Form I-20 or DS-2019, depending on the nature of the visit, and pay the fee.

When do prospective students or exchange visitors pay the SEVIS fee?

Applicants who require a visa to enter the United States must pay the SEVIS fee before going to the U.S. embassy or consulate for their visa interviews.

How is the fee paid?

Through the Internet at the Student and Exchange Visitor Program website by using a credit card and completing the online Form I-901. Please see www.fmjfee.com for more information and to pay your SEVIS fee.
